ardour cannot possibly delay the audio for that long. if you use it
for monitoring, it will delay the audio by a total of (jack period
size * number of periods). unless you are running JACK with huge
period sizes and/or lots of periods, this cannot add up to 1 or 2

are you running any FX plugins inside ardour?
